Lost & Found Pets
If you have LOST a pet, we are sorry and understand how difficult this time is. We will do everything we can to help you find them!
If you have FOUND a pet, thank you for keeping them safe and trying to get them back home as quickly as possible!
Start by completing H.A.L.O.’s “Report a Lost Pet” form below. We will make sure your pet report is posted on H.A.L.O.’s Facebook page as soon as possible. This will make sure the lost/found pet will be seen by our thousands of followers:
Note: H.A.L.O. will call to follow up with you on the status of your lost/found pet. Please do not be alarmed to receive this call. It may not mean we have found your pet. Please call or email us if your pet is found or reunited so we can keep up to date information.
Don’t stop there! Other steps you can take:
- Post the pet on Pawboost. This site will list the pet for free, post to FB, and post to the neighborhood pawboost page.
- Check / Update the Microchip!
- If this is a LOST pet, call your microchip company and make sure your pet is reported missing and your contact information is correct.
- If this is a FOUND pet, go to any local shelter or veterinarian and have the pet scanned for a microchip. This is usually a FREE service and H.A.L.O. can do it anytime during normal business hours!
- Report to your local Humane Society and go visit your local shelter in person!

Most cats are hiding nearby, usually next to your house or a few houses down. Cats usually do not travel long distances. We recommend putting an article of clothing or bedding outside to help them find their way home (something with your scent on it).
For fearful pets, we do have traps available for rent. We require a deposit which is fully refundable once your pet is home safe. Our traps range from small cat to large dog and our staff will walk you through the process!
